PV - photovoltaics

The event highlights how architects, designers, developers, and researchers take up the challenge of letting photovoltaic systems interact with landscapes and buildings.   “Energy as a landscape infrastructure” is the challenge for this year’s edition, in Marseille.

New solar photovoltaic (PV) installations are set to reach a record high this year, driven by improving markets in Europe and the United States and fast growth in India and Vietnam, consultancy Wood Mackenzie said on Thursday. Low auction prices are also expected to help boost new solar PV capacity by the end of this year to 114.5 gigawatts (GW), 17.5% higher than 2018 and the first time new installations have exceeded 100 GW.

ETIP PV is highly supportive of the EU’s interest in following a pathway that leads to a max -1.5°C warmer world and encourages it to put in place the policies that will achieve this as cost-effectively as possible. This means acting soon because zero net-carbon emissions are required by 2050.   The EU targets will be achieved with a fully decarbonised and expanded power sector that provides services in heating and cooling, transport and possibly chemical feedstocks.

Currently, the reliable evaluation of self-consumption and the interaction between the buildings and the grid is becoming crucial for the design. Nevertheless, the calculation approaches widely used allow for monthly and yearly evaluations of the energy demand.   Coping this issue, PVopti is an effective support for retrieving hourly energy demand profiles and photovoltaic production, evaluating the interaction with the grid and the self-consumption rate starting from the annual consumptio

Ogni impianto fotovoltaico è composto da numerosi componenti – moduli fotovoltaici, i diversi cavi, l’inverter ovvero il cuore dell’impianto stesso - tenerli monitorati e rendere questi dati facilmente accessibili permetterebbe di ottimizzare la gestione e la manutenzione degli impianti, che si tratti di impianti residenziali o di grandi impianti.

In the face of the urgent need to renovate and decarbonise the existing building stock, special focus is on building skins, such as roofs and facades, to make them more efficient through innovative solutions and materials, but also to generate energy. This is essential to achieve the EU 2030 energy targets, only 11 years away.

This database tool aims to boost the BIPV penetration in the building sector, overcoming existing barriers as well as encouraging designers with inspiring examples of BIPV buildings and a quick glance at the current BIPV market.   As part of this initiative, a database collecting products is worked in parallel. These products are categorised in (a) modules, (b) mounting systems and (c) energy systems and can then be filtered by colour, size, transparency, technology type, storage, power conversion, etc.
